Luminescence in inorganic materials arises from excitation from an external energy source, biochemical and chemical changes or reactions. This symposium covers theoretical and experimental aspects of the luminescence phenomena in insulators, semiconductors, disordered and amorphous materials and in structures such as micro-cavity, photonic and plasmonic ones. Luminescent materials have wide applications: solid-state lighting, detectors, imaging analysis, display devices such as field emission, plasma and electroluminescent, biomarkers, medical diagnostics and photodynamic therapy, amplifiers, lasers, security labelling and energy conversion. Luminescent centers, energy transfer and migration, excited state dynamics, collective phenomena and spectroscopic methods and analyses are topic areas. The challenge to develop new compounds along with novel synthesis methods to form nano- to single-crystal compositions and methods to characterize the luminescence phenomena are included. Progress on scintillators, upconversion materials, sensor and imaging materials are covered. The goals of this symposium are to highlight recent progress,  promote discussions among the participants and further develop concepts for the application of luminescent materials.
